After signing with the Milwaukee Bucks last summer, Mirza Teletovic experienced his fair share of shooting struggles this season. Was there more to his inconsistent year?

Whether it was through the draft or free agency, no area was addressed more by the Milwaukee Bucks last summer than their collective three-point shooting.

For that very reason, it was easy to see why the Bucks targeted Mirza Teletovic, who they signed to a three-year, $30 million deal.

Through the addition of Teletovic, the Bucks were hoping to regain some of the three-point firepower they had lost in their frontcourt after the departures of both Jared Dudley and Ersan Ilyasova the prior offseason.

Coming off a season in which the Bosnian native set the record for most three-pointers made in a reserve role (a record that has since been broken), it was certainly justifiable why the Bucks took such an interest Teletovic, something that was rumored about dating back to last year’s trade deadline.

In turn, it didn’t take too long to put two and two together as to why Teletovic chose to sign with the Bucks. He had a history playing under the team’s head coach Jason Kidd, which was said to have played a major factor in his free agency.

As we know, Teletovic’s first season in Milwaukee was far more rocky than anyone envisioned upon his arrival, though. Through all his struggles though, Teletovic managed to play a key role for the Bucks throughout the majority of the year.

For now, let’s take a deeper look at the good, the bad and everything in between of Mirza Teletovic’s 2016-17 season.
